Parkhome of Greys Hospital.
A satellite office has been set up by UKZN’s School of Clinical Medicine (SCM) at the Parkhome of Greys Hospital in order to assist undergraduate and postgraduate medical students with professional services that would otherwise be offered at the Medical School in Durban.
The Parkhome’s recently appointed Senior Admin Officer, Mr Ayanda Mthethwa said they offer a range of administrative services to undergraduate students in addition to postgraduate services for Mmed students and registrars. Parkhome has a local area network (LAN) which is accessible for academics, postgraduates and undergraduate students 24hours a day. Mthethwa said these services were similar to those being offered by the SCM offices in Durban but they offered these on a smaller scale.
‘Doctors no longer need to travel to Durban for postgraduate registration; they can do it at our office. We have a seminar room inside the Parkhome which is used for undergraduate teaching to students and other meetings. Our office is responsible for the fifth year undergraduate students who are rotating at the PMB Complex (i.e. the Edendale, Greys, Northdale, and Townhill hospitals) for the Paediatrics, Medicine and Psychiatry blocks. Our office also handles the student examinations for these blocks.’
